FREE Book Launch Seminar : Universal Health Coverage for Inclusive and Sustainable Development
by Dyan Ekawati - Friday, 7 November 2014, 11:21 AM
 

The Japan–World Bank Partnership Program on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) has concluded its multi-country study and will be sharing its findings with policy makers and other key stakeholders in Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam utilizing TDLC’s distance learning technology and network.

The goals of UHC are to ensure that all people can access quality health services, to safeguard all people from public health risks, and to protect all people from impoverishment due to illness, whether from out-of-pocket payments for healthcare or loss of income when a household member falls sick.

Countries as diverse as Brazil, France, Japan, Thailand, and Turkey have shown how UHC can serve as a vital mechanism for improving the health and welfare of their citizens, as well as lay the foundation for economic growth grounded in the principles of equity and sustainability. Eleven country studies (Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethiopia, France, Ghana, Indonesia, Japan, Peru, Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam) have been synthesized into a publication titled, “Universal Health Coverage for Inclusive and Sustainable Development: A Synthesis of 11 Country Case Studies.” In addition, the initiative resulted in an in-depth report on Japan’s experience entitled “Universal Health Coverage for Inclusive and Sustainable Development: Lessons from Japan.”

The distance Seminar will cover key findings from the 11 country case studies and will convene principal researchers from the Japan study to discuss Japan’s role in promoting UHC abroad.
